2013 Homestead Benefit Application Deadline Extended

November 2, 2015


Dear Property Owner:


The deadline for homeowners to file 2013 Homestead Benefit applications has been extended to Dec. 31,

  1. 2015. The original due date was Oc 30.


Homestead Benefit applications were mailed in August, and many homeowners need more time to file. Residents can file their applications either online or by phone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Most homeowners will receive their 2013 benefit payment as a credit on a future property tax bill. Homeowners who indicated when filing that they no longer own the property or those whose principal residence was a unit in a co-op or continuing care retirement community will receive their benefit by check (or direct deposit).
